Wood, of tho Chamber of Commerce, spoke of tho vital Interest of the chamber, not In politics, fbut In the upbuilding of tho city along the best lines. Mr. Von dorlehr asked If there wcro any one to speak ngnlnst the proposed plan of leillstrlctlng the city, and no one of? fered objeotlon. Mr. Lumsden moved that that part of tho report be recommend? ed for adoption, and the plan of mak? ing four wards was recommended. 11 to 1. Mr. Brown, of Washington Ward, being the only negative.

Mr. Nelson said on roll t.-all that ho believed in the plan, nnd voted for It, though against the pro? test of some of his constituents. Then came debate long and earnest over the more Important part of tho report* the resolution requesting u ehartcr channe creating an administra? tive hoard to supercede In executlvo management of the city departments fourteen Council committees. Mr. Bonntree, of the special committee, spoke of It as the way In which large cbfpbr. lions now mnnnged their busi? ness enterprises, and as practically tho method now In successful operation in Toronto and other cities. He was slow id believe that there was a lobby of oily employes ncalnst It, saving that no employe who was giving a fair j day's work for his pay could object, and the sooner the others were known and eliminated the better lloyd Indorse* lleport. James N. Boyd spoke earnestly, tell- : lug of the efforts in all lines of trade to do away with cumbersome ways \ ol carrying on business. He wouldn't ' come down night after night to at? tend i<> the city's business himself, he j j.ilrt. and wouldn't ask others to do; it for nothing. The city should pay I 10 have its work done, and well done. "J indorse the report." he said. "While ,! we have an honest council, we can j put !i into effect. It may save a great j loss in the future." ti '/,. Morris, of the committee, said t'int the report did not offer perfec? tion, but a lone departure from anti Qiiated methods. The only oppositicr. he said, was es to the method of elec? tion, and because It did not go far enough and include the fire and po? lice board*. He favored election by ; the people, and wa? satisfied that tho i voters would rut Into office men they j c<>uld trust.

Christian said that' after close study he believed the plan presented separating legislative and executive departments according to basic principles-, was a hotter form than v. hat Is known as the commission. ; ar.d would give the city a government ' of which it might proud. John C. Freeman Illustrated present oiumsl rcss by telling of the six-year effort to get a w hnrf. which no one had opc-T.ly opposed, and which had yet hung lire for live years. Dr. VI. S. ' Callsch thought the plan for an Ad? ministrative Board went straight to ' the crux of the situation, cutting through all red tape, giving business management and leaving the Council tree to li gislatc. He believed the ' people couhl be trusted with the elec? tion; that they could govern them? selves better than any special class j could govern for them. The first note of opposition came 1 from George McD. Blake, a member of the Council, rnut not of tho committee. ; Hc^favored the plan, but opposed pop? ular election of the commissioners on the ground that tho best men would hot enter such a contest, and that too Mnnll a portion of the electorate was .I'.inllfltd to vote. lllrnchlierg Amendment. To test the sense of the committee, ' Mr. Hlrsehhcrg moved to strike out the exemption of the Fire, Police and Health Boards, putting nil depart? ments under one board. Chairman Pol? lock, of the special commit too, said that the point had been very carefully considered. He was frank to say that for political reasons tho amendment would greatly endanger and might occasion the defeat of the whole plan. 1 Further, those departments are now; mannged by commissioners, who are not In the Council, and whose func? tions are purely executive, und the i boards are limited by Council action ns to their expenditures. All three wcro s well managed ns to compel tho commendation of the community, ' and there was no pressing renson for chnngc. Further, the newly elected commissioners would have all they ; could do to familiarize themselves with the work of tho various depart- : monts. Later It might be wise to con- [ solldnte the Fire nnd Volicc Depart- i merits under the administrative board, j He thought the Health Board should 1 always be made up of scientific men i who gave their services and skill to tho city. Much llunlncKH to MannRc. City Attorney Pollard reminded the j committee that Richmond was the only city of Its size owning its gas, water ] and electric plants. Some own their water works, a few gas, and none that he knew of their electric plants, mak? ing the burdens of business manage? ment heavier here than in other places. The^ School Board, he explained, wns beyond the question?n State 'board over which the Council had no control. I Mr. Umlauf1 favored the plan pro vldlng all the boards were consoll- | dat/id, holding that men sitting daily ; could transact business better than j any board or committee meeting twice a month. "If you want a clean nnd , up-to-date government. I am with I you," he concluded. "If you w*nt to . go half way, I am not with you." | When the roll wns called he voted j no. Mr. Gunst said that In redlstrlcting, ! the city was doing what he had advo cated In H'09. Ills plan then was for: u Council 'of eleven paid men, to sit j in dally scs-rdon. While he still be- ! lievod it superior, he found const I- ! tuttonn] dlflleultles, and was Impressed j with the Importance of action. "1 do ; not approve -of the plan entirely." he said, "but I oppose tampering with It so as to make its passage dangerous. If you feel you need a change?and God knows we do need one?vole for this proposition. Don't mess it up so that when adopted the committee that j fathered it won't recognize it." Amendment I? Lost.

BRIEF RESPITE FOR CAMPAIGN WORKERS Tho 400 workers engaged In collect? ing contributions and donations In tho S15O.Q00 Young woman's Christian Association building campaign have been granted a respite from their la? bors for Thanksgiving Day, although it Is probable thut many will keep ?mi working to-day.

It had been Intended by the workers to pile up a total of $100.000 by Thanksgiving, and as several among the most successful solicitors failed to report yesterday it 1b probable that this ambition may have been realized. At the end of the midday luncheon the Rev. jftmci Huchunan, of the As? sociated Charities, was" Introduced and addressed the workers.

Promotion of pupils In high ?chools and requisites for entrance Into universities and collegos were dis? cussed. Professor W. M. Thornton, of the University of Virginia, spoke on ! the topic. "Should Colleges and Uni? versities Decline to Receive the Cer | tlflcutes of Pupils Who Have Been Graduated from High Schools Using ! the Exemption Plan?" j Professor Thornton contended for the ? time-honored plan of examination, . promotlouu and admissions, and said i the university should not receive a I pupil upon the recommendation of the ; high school unless that high school . had conducted un examination on a ! standard that had been accepted as a ! sufficient tost by the university.
